SILOKSAN GEL

  • Ancillary products
  • Water-borne

Water-borne gel containing polysiloxane for use together with SILOKSAN FACADE Silicone Emulsion Paint on mineral surfaces (the SILOKSAN method). Saves from 1-3 separate primings and saves thus also application costs.

Will improve the water-repellent qualities of the substrate by preventing rain and splash water from penetrating into the structures. Allows water vapour from the structure to penetrate. Diminishes seepage of salts to the surface of the structure.

Surface preparation

See label or data sheet of SILOKSAN FACADE Silicone Emulsion Paint.

Application

Mix with SILOKSAN FACADE Silicone Emulsion Paint before painting, in the ratio 9 l paint to 1 l gel. Stir by e.g. drilling machine for a minimum of 5 minutes. The application is done according to instructions given for SILOKSAN FACADE Silicone Emulsion Paint. NOTE! The ready mixed paint must be used within the same working day (<18 h). The paint can be used after this time, but the water-repellent properties will be weakened and are then approximately the same as for the top coat.

The temperature shall be above +5 °C and the relative air humidity below 80 %.
